Default CRPS / RSD Supplements

Dear friends - I have been taking ALAmax CR from Xymogen as recommended by Dr. Sajben. Could other RSD sufferers please share their thoughts on what they have found to be the best alpha-lipoic acid for us? Maybe there is a thread on this you could point me to? I am now looking at some other options. Tx!

I've heard of ALA but not for CRPS. I'm anxious to hear about how it may help. I take magnesium (helps nerves and muscles) and vitamin C (supposed to help prevent spread) along with some usual RX meds.
Thanks for sharing!

Default Acetyl-L Carnitine ALA?

I have also heard doctors sometimes recommend Acetyl-L Carnitine ALA for RSD. I would greatly appreciate hearing from other RSD patients reading this. What form of ALA have you found to be the best recommended option for RSD? Thx for sharing!

Low Dose Naltrexone is often recommended, and a large dose of Vitamin C for 45 days. If you are able to see Dr. Pradeep Chopra in Rhode Island for a consultation he is a genius of CRPS and he is a very caring, loving person. he knows what to recommend you.

I have gone through many procedures and meds over the years and have decided to go with natural means also. I am currently taking *admin edit* essential oils. I have been taking the *admin edit* for three months now. I feel better mood wise and have improved my range of motion. They have other oils and creams as well. *admin edit* for info. Let me know if you have any questions. Prayers and soft hugs.
